Description & Analysis

This is the highest mintage of dimes at the San Francisco during the years 1861-67, and it is only moderately scarce in lower grades. Mint State examples are rare. Like the example illustrated, most will show some weakness at the mintmark and bow knot.

Four die pairs were shipped to San Francisco for dime coinage in October of 1863, but seemingly only one was used.
